    I didn't realize that is the same person! This person has been completely out of their depth for years now, good luck to any class she gets near.

    Burgs are not happy with lies and ignorance

    My point is more that SSG only seems to work seriously on things that will bring money to the game, like the Premium class Beorning, rather than the free-to-play burglar. Starting burg changes on BR and dropping them on live is typical of this. And the raid and new quest being closed for bugs already tells me that they put a lot more time and attention to trying to make the game look more modern to appeal to new players with things like zone reworks. graphic frills, and quest text resizing. They're trying like hell to bring new money to the game, instead of working to please those who have been here forever, know their classes forwards and backwards and are desperate for new things to do. Today I got a new splash screen on login that just said something like "check out the "new to LOTRO!" section in the store for new items!" That's for newer players who have been conditioned to just buy their way thru content. It's all about putting lipstick on a pig and trying to get money for it.

    Burgs are not happy with lies and ignorance

    They let Beornings stay broken for years until they finally started working on a beorning-centered update (based on the screenshots of land people got to that's currently off the map). Not sure what they can make for a burg-centered update though. Maybe the raid for Scouring of the Shire can make burgs needed to surround Sharkey and stab him in the ass to take him down. That's when they'll work on the class.
  6. I skipped Mordor completely. I have the points to buy it but I never will. I started the area after that (the one with Dale and Laketown) but lost interest fairly quickly. I did get my main to level cap using festival quests, now I'm waiting for them to redesign or drop LIs completely before I consider playing again.

    Valentine's Day cards already on display in the stores here this morning. 🙁

  11. I do all ten on my main for the wrapper quests and the daily on my alts. This is the only time I really play anymore. I'm going to get my main to 120 that way, and pick up a fair amount of marks and meds too. As Woeg says, the quest XP is really good and it's a mindless way to get it. Then I'll pay up all my house maintenance and park everybody again.
  12. I'm just going to leave this here and stay off the forum for a while. I'm very very tempted to respond to this particular post with a flame of epic proportions and I'm not ready to get banned just yet. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?670059-Questions-for-Cordovan&p=7902612#post7902612 This asswipe has the gall to say that the reason there were bans recently is because of how badly poor, poor Cordovan was treated. I can't even. I need to go calm down.
  13. Who wants to bet that they ask for their first thread to be closed, since it's a dup of the other one? Or better yet, try to get it deleted via direct PMs to Cord?
  14. Well looky here, someone's got their panties all in a bunch today: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?670030-Now-they-have-broken-ALL-quests sounds upset, too, wondering if the QA team went on holiday early....SSG can do no wrong until MY gameplay is affected...hah!
  15. Didn't they have a dwarf-related store bundle of stuff for sale when the last area was released? They'll have a beorning-related one with this one, for sure. And the beorning is a premium class, isn't it? So players will have to purchase the bear to get in on the fun if they don't have it already. You know, for lore and all that.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    I was just going to come here to link the same thread. Cord is not doing anyone any favors by being so thin-skinned and vindictive.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    We need SNy to come back and update the dictionary with an SSG-specific entry for "inappropriate". For those who missed it, it's here: https://lotrocommunity.com/forum/topic/3038-turbine-dictionary-of-contemporary-english/?tab=comments#comment-90493
  19. Was that around the same time that there was talk of the severe overtime crunch that the Red Dead Redemption 2 team endured to get that game out? I remember a lot of game devs weighing in on the topic when that came out.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know what's up with Fredelas these days?

    That was the day of all the layoffs at Daybreak... I wonder if that's why Cord was in such a bitchy mood this week.

    Questions asked and answered

    I agree completely. Remember that they introduced a new hire who was brought in a while back to focus on the store. That person probably asked for a list of all the friendly, fun, free things in the game and started working to get rid of them one by one. And also gave them an order to start changing things to make it much more store-intensive. Making the Legendary Server VIP-Only was a master evil genius move, make people pay to see how their new schemes work, and gather metrics to see just where they can tweak things to make it more punishing without the store. I can't wait to see what they come up with for LIs.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Hi Kickman! I was stunned to see that you got banned. I think they've been gunning for Hurin for a while, and needed to use you in the ban sweep as a way to get him out of there too, not just the person who went after you.
  24. Agreed. Also: Use code BLACKDYE in the store for one free black dye, till Dec. 13. (For you, Doro) 🙂

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    I'm pretty sure that the same voice actor also voices Aragorn and Eomer. But for Eomer, he just makes his voice sound a lot deeper. It reminds me of that scene in Infinity War where Star-Lord is trying to sound like Thor, gets called out on it, and yells "This IS my voice!". LOL yeah right.
